The Federal Republic of Mariadne is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.94 billion Mariadneans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Rios. The average income tax rate is 70.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Mariadnean economy, worth 473 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 95,822 Dollarydoos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, government-sanctioned factory-smashing has the Luddites of Mariadne rejoicing, motorway service stations often have a higher population than the hinterland villages that the roads lead to, and foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mariadne's national animal is the Mariadnean Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
